Die Hörbarkeitsgrenzen von Impulsen verschiedener Dauer
The hearing and masking thresholds for continuous tones, given as function of frequency are compared with the thresholds of pulses, given as function of pulse duration. The masking thresholds of tone pulses obey very simple laws. For pulses of very short duration these thresholds become the same as for single pressure pulses. The masking thresholds of random noise pulses are a different function of pulse duration and thereby give an indication of the ability of the hearing mechanism to be “trained” to subdivide a continuous noise spectrum into frequency bands We have to consider the “training” as starting anew with the onset of each new pulse.
